    Queensland's children can't wait

    Child safety is everyone’s business, and as community members we recognise the role that we have to play. However, Child Safety Services have an important and particular role in keeping Queensland's children safe from harm.

    As a community, we believe our responsibility to ensure that our children have safe and healthy upbringings is one of the most important there is.

    Child Safety Services do an extremely difficult job with resources that do not match the community's needs. Child Safety Services is our last line of defence for harm against children, and we need to properly resource the department so that its workers can do their job to the best of their ability. We call upon you to listen to the workers that know best about how to support our at-risk children and families, and implement a funding model that supports them.

    Queensland's children can't wait.

    No TAFE takeover

    1,622 signatures

    We are calling on Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk and Minister for Skills and Training Yvette D'Ath to oppose the Turnbull government’s plans to takeover TAFE and open the doors to private providers rushing in to profit off students seeking vocational education.

    See the leaked plan here. 

    Last year when Queenslanders voted for change, they voted against cuts, privatisation of their public services and assets – including TAFE. The Palaszczuk government has taken important steps to reverse the attacks on the sector under the Newman government and should be commended for their efforts to put students and workers ahead of the wholesale privatisation of the sector envisaged by the LNP and their big business backers.

    Add your name today and join with the Queenslanders calling for a better public TAFE not the dismantling of the sector through cuts, privatisation and fee hikes.
